(HealthDay News) -- Toddlers and temper tantrums often seem to go together. So, what can parents do?

The American Academy of Pediatrics offers these suggestions:

  • Pay attention to your child, particularly during times when he or she is behaving well, and offer praise.
  • Distract your child by moving to a different area, singing a song or offering a different toy.
  • When appropriate, accommodate your child, if possible. Be consistent from day to day.
  • Understand and respect your child's limits. Don't push the child when the toddler is hungry or tired.
  • Make sure your child understands that hitting, kicking and biting are never tolerated.
  • Stay calm and if possible, take a break when you need it.
